Mozilla has announced the release of Firefox 115, featuring a refreshed and streamlined user interface for importing data in from other browsers; as well as, a fallback to Cisco's OpenH264 plugin.

First made available to release channel users on July 4th, Firefox 115 will the last version to support Windows 7, Windows 8, macOS Mojave 10.14, macOS 10.13 High Sierra, and macOS 10.12 Sierra.

In January 2023, Microsoft ended support for Windows 7 and Windows 8. As a consequence, this is the last version of Firefox that users on those operating systems will receive. Users on Windows 7 and Windows 8 will automatically be migrated to the ESR 115 version of Firefox so that they continue to receive important security updates. Visit this Firefox support article for more information.


Similarly, this is the last major version of Firefox that will support Apple macOS 10.12, 10.13, and 10.14. Users on those operating systems will be migrated to the ESR 115 version of Firefox so that they continue to receive important updates. Visit this Firefox support article for more information.

What's New in Firefox 115
● Migrating from another browser? Now you can bring over payment methods you've saved in Chrome-based browsers to Firefox.

● Hardware video decoding is now enabled for Intel GPUs on Linux.

● The Tab Manager dropdown now features close buttons, so you can close tabs more quickly.


● We've refreshed and streamlined the user interface for importing data in from other browsers.

● Users without platform support for H264 video decoding can now fallback to Cisco's OpenH264 plugin for playback.

Fixed
● Windows Magnifier now follows the text cursor correctly when the Firefox title bar is visible.

● Windows users on low-end/USB wifi drivers and with OS geolocation disabled can now approve geolocation on a case by case basis without causing system-wide network instability.

● Various security fixes.

Changed
● Undo and redo are now available in Password fields.

● On Linux, middle clicks on the new tab button will now open the xclipboard contents in the new tab. If the xclipboard content is a URL then that URL is opened, any other text is opened with your default search provider.

● For users with a Firefox Colorways built-in theme, the theme will be automatically migrated to the same theme hosted on addons.mozilla.org for Firefox profiles that have disabled add-ons auto-updates. This will allow users to keep their Colorways theme when they are later removed from Firefox installer files.

● Certain Firefox users may come across a message in the extensions panel indicating that their add-ons are not allowed on the site currently open. We have introduced a new back-end feature to only allow some extensions monitored by Mozilla to run on specific websites for various reasons, including security concerns.
